Following our second meeting, JPF formed working committees to build our organization and implement our mission and vision for Jefferson Park. If you have an interest in serving on any committee, please contact us.
Our working committees are:
This committee comprises members interested in urban planning, tactical urbanism, economic development and similar issues in the community. Dennis Davis chairs the committee.
There is one sub-committee: Participatory Budgeting. This subcommittee represents JPF on the 45th Ward Participatory Budgeting program. The subcommittee will help JPF recommend and support projects that benefit the community.
The Fundraising & Service Committee is responsible for developing partnerships with local non-profit charity organizations and other groups to the betterment of our community. Sam Wertime chairs the committee.

The Livability & Attractiveness Committee is concerned with the beautification of Jefferson Park. Initiatives it has led include the Metra Twitter Campaign to force Metra to clean the Jefferson Park Metra station, the Spring Clean & Green event, and flowers at the post office.
